Last week I fell while going down our stairwell. I hardly take the elevator and in 5 years of going up and down those stairs, I have not experienced anything like this. In fact, the day before, I ran up and down the 5 levels 3 times without incident. What was different? Why did this happen? Well… simple… I became distracted! I tried to look at my phone while going down the stairs. I was not paying attention! (Side note: NO ONE is successful at multitasking… Don’t buy the lie!)
Sometimes we can feel invincible and other times we can feel vulnerable. Taking the fall immediately made me experience 2 simultaneous thoughts, while feeling very vulnerable. (By the way… we learn and grow the most when we are vulnerable.)
My first thought was, “Wow… I am glad no one was in the stairwell to witness this fall!” I must say, I had to sit there for a while to determine if I could walk as I felt something stretch, like a rubber band, in my ankle. I have never broken a bone or felt anything stretch that much before.
The second thought was not really a thought. It was what I lovingly call, “God whispers,” telling me to stay focused. I actually heard the voice say, “Keep your eyes focused on Me!” Oh yes… I heard that loud and clear!
God speaks to us in so many ways. I heard the voice, but did I really have to take a tumble? Well, possibly! It is called, “on the job training!”
It is times like divorce, bankruptcy, death, illness, accidents, and trials that God gets our attention.
God is within us. The times when we feel independent, distracted, resistant, or flat out prideful, that is when God walks besides us with an extended arm. We are like a lost 2-year-old wanting the guidance of a parent. God waits for us to reach out our hand and say, “I want peace… please hold my hand and guide me.”
If you are feeling depressed, confused, in turmoil, alone, or just want a change, perhaps it is time to reach out and ask. Maybe it is time to gather your thoughts and discover what you genuinely want. (If so, please consider joining us for the New Truths Series: I AM the SOLUTION virtual weekend workshop & Continuing Education for the Soul.)
If we understood who walked besides us, we would feel true peace, the kind that surpasses all understanding. Trials are gifts… Yes, they are wrapped in ugly paper, but this is when we learn the best lessons that transform us.
I am grateful for my fall and my sprained ankle. What trials are you grateful for?

The Lillian McDermott
Monday, 2-1-21 Facebook Watch Party 12:05 pm ~ With all the talk of “fake news,” do you ever wonder what is real? Unfortunately, from the moment we are in the womb our destiny is being decided not only by our parents but also by special interest groups. The food, pharmaceutical, technology, and entertainment industries spend billions to make sure we want the latest and greatest, even if the information is not accurate. As a result, it is difficult to change our habits and beliefs. Board certified internal medicine physician and coauthor of Brain Wash, Austin Perlmutter, MD, specializes in the effects of burnout and depression. He will share how TIME (Time, Intention, Mindfulness, and Enrichment) can help us detox our mind for clearer thinking, deeper relationships, and lasting happiness. (Aired 2/4/20)
Tuesday, 2-2-21 Facebook LIVE 12:05 pm ~ Do you ever feel that you are in your own private “groundhog day” movie? If you find yourself repeating patterns or behaviors that you want to release, then make the commitment to join us for the New Truths Series: I AM the SOLUTION weekend workshop February 5th – 7th. I will share how this weekend will help you discover how you can release the life you don’t want so you can make room for the life you do want.
Wednesday, 2-3-21 Facebook LIVE 12:05 pm ~ I love getting poked in the eyes by my mentor and friend, Lorraine Day, MD. As you know, we are studying the Exodus in our New Truths Series: 50 Lessons from the Exodus Bible Study.It dawned on me that the God of the old testament is very different from the God of the new testament. Dr. Day is back to share how and why one God can be so different.
Thursday, 2-4-21 Facebook LIVE 12:05 pm ~ Investigative journalist, Harry Vox, of Vox News, has warned us about The Rockefeller Foundation published document Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development. We discussed how we are experiencing one of the four scenarios called, “Lock Step.” Harry is back to share why now, more than ever, we need to wake up, speak up and be part of the solution!
Friday, 2-5-21 Facebook Watch Party 12:05 pm ~ In 2013, I watched a documentary called Food Matters featuring Orthomolecular Scientist, Dr. Andrew Saul. I immediately reached out to him. During our interview, Dr. Saul shared how I could get off my asthma medications by using vitamin C. I have not looked back. Making the decision to get off my asthma medication has kept me from potential long-term side effects. I asked Dr. Saul to share his 7 Steps to Better Health! (Aired 2-5-19)
It is a busy week and I hope you will set your reminder to meet me on the air… Let’s all listen & learn together!
